I was sent a bottle of Brut aftershave. A little bit suspicious, I smelled it – and it’s just the same as it ever was – a mix of alcohol and, well, blokes! It kind of warms down to a gentler smell that’s slightly woody – as long as you don’t ‘splash it on all over’ of course, a la Henry Cooper. I gave it away almost the same day to the 17 year old son of a friend and was astonished at his reaction. He actually hugged me – kissed me on both cheeks – and shot off to break it open! Turns out Brut is now retro enough that it’s well and truly back on trend – he was completely thrilled. Who knew?
